Natural Gas Prices: Scope for further losses

Natural Gas prices dropped further and recorded new monthly lows just below the $1,67 level during early trade on Wednesday. Increasing open interest amidst lower prices paves the way for extra losses in the very near-term.

On the broader scenario, if the selling pressure gathers pace, YTD lows in the sub-$1.60 region could emerge as the next relevant contention, while any serious recovery is expected to meet interim hurdle at the 100-day SMA at $1.845 and the 55-day SMA at $1.876, all ahead of monthly tops in the $1.90 neighbourhood.
